They're neat in salads, or lightly wilted in a little garlic and olive oil and served with crusty bread. Just use them right away as they don't keep fresh for long once they are picked.

A long time ago my grandparents used to make dandilion wine, but I don't recall ever tasting it.

They are great cooked as greens!

I blanch them once or twice to get rid of any bitterness first though.

Then I cook them with ham hocks or smoked joe bacon.....great stuff!!!!

Maiderite,

My grandpa, use to grpw them...We would wash well, slice thin, dress with evoo and red wine vinegar, added to this would be hard cooked eggs, diced in big chunks, and sweet red onion in thin slices..Add salt and fresch cracked pepper and we all just dove in with our hot slices of garlic bread...Ahhhh summertime lunch

My Grandma used to make them, but she'd only pick the tiny, little leaves that were still tender. She'd then fry up some bacon, crumble it up; leave some of the bacon grease in the pan, add some sugar, s/p, and the greens, just til they wilted. Served w/'Yankee cornbread'. Yum!

Speaking of greens I was just at the library looking for a book on edible wild plants in NC. Couldn't find one. I know about poke and a few other wild greens does anyone know where I can find more info?
